The Best Flat-Tummy Breakfast

My breakfasts needs are pretty simple.

  1. Prep-less as I stumble around my kitchen before the sun rises searching through half-opened eyelids for coffee.
  2. Portable to bring to work with me, since I eat it after my morning workout.
  3. Sweet. I love starting (and ending) my day with something sweet.
  4. Filled with fiber and nutrients to keep my full and energized until my next meal.
  5. A good combination of protein and healthy carbohydrates to recover post-workout. If you’re working your butt off (or on, I should say) at the gym and not seeing results, look very closely at your post-workout meal (or nutrition in general).
  6. It must improve my digestion, not wreck havoc on it.

When the weather starts to get warmer, I crave something cool and refreshing. Not always the easiest thing to bring prepped because who wants to eat day-old cold eggs or a melted smoothie?

Overnight Oats to the rescue!

Simple Superfood Overnight Oats

This creamy recipe takes all of 5 minutes to prep the night (or a couple nights) before, it’s packed with fiber and vital nutrients, tastes A-mazing, and is perfect pre or post-workout. Raw oats are considered “resistant starches” because they digest lower in our intestines. This promotes healthy gut bacteria which aids in digestion – aka less bloating! The addition of chia seeds gives your body some extra calcium, potassium, magnesium, and Omega-3 fatty acids which help reduce inflammation. They absorb the liquid they’re in, giving these overnight oats a thicker, pudding-like texture.

  3. I always reach for coffee first in the morning too! Your Overnight Oats look delicious – I love how you have incorporated so many good for you ingredients in them. Thank you for being a part of Hearth and Soul. Will be pinning this recipe!

  4. Overnight oats are one of my favorite easy breakfasts too! Love making them with blueberries and sprinkling some granola on top for crunch!

  5. this looks so good to me, but I like to eat my oatmeal warm. would it be weird to heat this up in the morning or is it supposed to be cold?

  6. This looks so good! Question for you though- I’m allergic to berries, so is there something that can be substituted? Is there another fruit that would work with this?
